Abstract

The immense extent of forest land in Tasmania has struck
every visitor to the island from the time of Abel Tasman to
our own day. On the visitors who came to stay as settlers,
this fact made an unfavourable impression, as its signification
to them was the cost of clearing land for cultivation. And
this impression has coloured and affected all that has been
done in the way of dealing with forest land in the State.
Trees have been regarded almost exclusively as impediments
to agriculture, and not as possessing any intrinsic value worth
consideration.
